Granta Design has announced the release of CES Edupack 2010, the latest version of the teaching resource for materials and processes.

The interdisciplinary support provided by CES Edupack is extended, with new editions for nuclear power and sustainability, and the built environment added to existing editions for: general, mechanical and materials engineering; design; eco design; bio engineering; aerospace; polymers; and architecture.

CES Edupack combines comprehensive materials information, specialist software to access and use that information and extensive supplementary teaching resources.

It is used for lectures, project work, student exercises and course handouts.

The 2010 version contains many new features and resources to support these different ways of using Edupack.

The two new Edupack editions support sustainability and energy, as do enhancements to the Eco Audit Tool, which aids study of key concepts in eco design.

One feature makes it easy to view and plot project data, alongside data from Edupack information resources Video tutorials make it easier for students and academics to get started with the Edupack software.

A Spanish language version is added to existing English, French and German versions.

The Nuclear Power Edition provides schematics and descriptions of reactor types, integrated with information on materials grades and properties of specific interest in nuclear power systems.

The Sustainability and the Built Environment edition enhances the standard materials and process information in CES Edupack with additional environmental property data and information on construction materials and structural sections.

The result is a comprehensive materials teaching resource for courses in civil engineering, structures, the built environment and for architectural courses that need greater depth on engineering materials and/or eco properties.

The Materials Education Symposia feature speakers from 15 leading universities, discussing ideas for teaching of materials and processes in engineering and related subjects.

Both events are preceded by two days of optional short courses.

The events provide an opportunity for attendees to see and try CES Edupack 2010, and to provide input to the development of next year’s Edupack release.

Symposia dates and locations: 20 March, 2010, at the Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey, USA; 26 March, 2010, at the University of Cambridge, UK.
